Get this when I open a skin:


I haven't seen this before with any skin or any work with previous PPT.

Hi Dave,

That's not an error, it's actually correcting an old error. If you follow the instructions and save it will update your skin correctly. It was recently discovered that the default projects auto-generated by Help+Manual used to create comma-separated skip words in the search settings, instead of space-separated. Skins and projects based on those projects kept those settings, so that the skip words in the list were ignored in the search.

This included the skins in the Premium Pack. However, this was corrected in all the skins in the 3.43 update, so if you are getting the message it means you're not using the updated skin, but one of your older ones.

Thanks for the explanation. And yes, I'm using old skins - I followed best practices and worked only from copies of skins.

Naturally, I go back into the (old) copy when continuing with my project. Pulling in an updated skin, then going through even the basic configuration editing (substituting our logo for EC Software/H+M, our URLs for EC-Software's, etc.) -- not to mention re-creating my own, add-on edits -- would take time that I don't have.
